After graduating with a degree in Mathematics & Statistics from Exeter University David trained as an actor at RADA and then worked in the theatre (Royal Shakespeare Company, and Royal National Theatre) for 8 years. He then spent a number of years working in business as a Business Development Director where his responsibilities included developing new video and design & print business. Later he joined to a start-up company to work on expanding it from a video production company through to multimedia and e-learning.
For the last 5 years David has combined his business and acting backgrounds by working in Business Communications Media production and Face-to-Face Training. David has been a facilitator and role-player, running workshops on Communications, Presentation Skills, Negotiation, and Telesales. Film and theatre are strong interests for David, beyond his career interest as an actor, and he has written both for television and corporate video. He co-wrote a screenplay (God – The Movie) that was optioned by Impact Films; co-developed the series premise and character for Fish (BBC 1993); was commissioned (Jon Plowman) with two others to write a pilot sit-com for the BBC; wrote a radio advertisement for a firm of architects; and has written numerous corporate video films.
"Having attended many training courses during my career I can't remember any that have been able to put people at ease so quickly, and really begun to change the way people approach a subject. Clearly this effect can only be down to the skills of the trainer."
